The Department of Physics in the Faculty of Arts and Science in collaboration with the PERFORM Centre at Concordia University is seeking to hire a medical imaging physicist/biomedical engineer. The successful candidate will be expected to develop a strong and independent research program in the Department of Physics, while collaborating with a multidisciplinary team within Concordia and the PERFORM Centre.
The PERFORM Centre is a new, state-of-the-art imaging centre located in Montréal, Canada, and is part of Concordia University. The Centre is dedicated to conducting cutting edge lifestyle preventative health research. The Centre houses a GE Healthcare 3T Magnetom functional MRI scanner, a PET-CT scanner with cardiac imaging and a SPECT-CT scanner. In addition there are specialized labs in electroencephalography (EEG), transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), ultrasounds and dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). The Department of Physics, in collaboration with Perform Centre, is adding medical physics to its two main orientations in research, namely biophysics and nanophysics.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in Medical Physics, Biomedical Engineering or a related field, with preferably a good experience in MRI pulse sequence programming and experimentation, and an outstanding publication record. He/she will be expected to build a strong research group, raise substantial external funding, supervise multiple graduate students and teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Critical skills include a strong background in the development and implementation of medical imaging methods and/or hardware. Overlapping research interests with biophysics or nanophysics will be an asset.
Subject to budgetary approval, we anticipate filling this position at the rank of Assistant Professor; however, appointments at a higher rank will be considered. While the start date for this position is negotiable, all applications should be received by May 15, 2013. Applications must consist of a cover letter, a current curriculum vitae, copies of recent publications, a statement of teaching philosophy/interests, a research statement including major achievements and a future plan, and evidence of teaching effectiveness. Candidates must also arrange to have three letters of reference sent directly to:
Prof. Truong Vo-Van, Chair
Department of Physics
1455 De Maisonneuve W, SP 367.03
Montréal, QC H3G 1M8
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority. Concordia University is committed to Employment Equity and encourages applications from women, aboriginal peoples, visible minorities and persons with disabilities.
